A Rose for Christmas

12chrisrose1

This beautiful white blossom is from the plant commonly known as the Lenten Rose – but it is also called a Christmas Rose in some parts – which for this season, and for this particular flower – is more apt. I saw this on my last trip to Boston, and swore I heard it crying out on a November night, hanging on to the last bit of warmth from the sidewalk, shrinking into its Brownstone-backed corner, and valiantly putting on its last show in the spotlight of a street lamp. I’m not sure it will still be there when I return to Boston this weekend, but I’ll keep an eye out.
